Yes ... you read that correctly! Life is short, sometimes, you do NEED dessert. A little sugar here and there is not going to kill you, it’s just not, but we always recommend eating dessert made from the highest quality ingredients, so that you’re completely satisfied and not putting chemical junk into your body. This lava cake recipe is adapted slightly from TexanErin. That said, these aren’t actually that high in sugar - just 1/4 a cup - and we use coconut sugar. Coconut sugar is quite low on the glycemic index and it contains inulin. Inulin has properties similar to probiotics, and helps with gut health which can boost to the immune system. These are also grain free for you grain- free eaters. And, believe it or not, they are a lot easier to make than you would think. Just be very careful not to over bake.
We love berries and we know you do too! They happen to be very high in antioxidants, add a great dose of vitamins, have great flavor and are lower in sugar than most fruit. In this smoothie, we are adding some greens from the spinach and healthy fat from avocado to make sure this smoothie keeps you fueled for your busy day ahead. The slivered almonds and basil kick this basic smoothie up a notch!
